[RESOLVED]YEP ANOTHER POWER SUPPLY FIX>> I'm guessing power issu


Recommended Posts

Here is my current setup.

 

DFI NF4 Expert ^_^

Opteron 165 @ 313x9, 1.59-1.60v (xp-90, 92mm foxconn fan)

1GBx2 G-Skill PC4000 @ ~ 259MHz, 3-4-4-8 1t, 2.84v

HIS IceQ3 X1900XT 512MB @ stock

CD-RW, DVD-Rom, Floppy

Fan controler

(4) 80mm fans, (3) 120mm fans

(2) SATA2 HD's, 1 IDE

 

All of that is powered by my 17 month old Enermax Whisper II 535W "SLI" psu.

 

I've had the following problems for a couple months. Whenever I unplug my pc, bsod's, lock ups, etc..., I am forced to restart the PSU before it can turn on again. This doesn't really bother me because my PC is practically on 24/7.

 

Recently, I've had a more serious issue. Whenever my PC is unplugged (like going to a lan), My PC will not post. The red lights on the mobo will have a long flash, and a short flash. Sometimes, it will post after a minute, usually it doesn't. It comes to the point where I have to unplug a few items before I can get it to post again.

 

I'm 99% sure this is a power issue. I'm just looking for someone who can confirm this before I end up spending a bunch of cash.

Well.. your PSU is on the "B" list..but you are running quite a bit in your system. You have a heck of a lot of fans running. I would most definitely upgrade to an "A" list PSU..they are not all terribly expensive.

The OCZ Powerstream 520W powers all that is in my SIG plus three 120MM fans with ease. My RIG is an SLI setup although not a High-end one.

I would think so also. This is a little off your post but how are those timings working for you with the gskill? I noticed them and thought how weird I'm running the exact same timings. Gskill F14000USU2 -2BHZ's

 

I'm not getting very much out of them on my expert. I can't get it stable above 265, no matter how much voltage I add, or how loose the timings are. Which annoys me because I managed to get them up to 280-290mzh stable on my former msi sli platinum with ~2.75v

 

I guess scoring one of these will do the trick. ^_^
